The One Book Meme

Stolen from Krista who got it from Annie.

The One Book That Changed Your Life

green_eggs_and_ham.jpgI had to think about this one but within a moment it popped into my head: Green Eggs and Ham. Seriously, it's from Sam that I learned that you should try everything, you may like it. Holly Cow! Do you think I subconsciously named my second daughter after him?

One book that you've read more than once:

Where Late The Sweet Birds SangActually, there have been more than one but Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang, the tale of civilizations end and rebirth haunts me for some reason.

One book you'd want on a desert island:

Hmmm....will come back to this one.

Lord of the RingsGot it! The Lord of the Rings: 50th Anniversary, One Vol. Edition

One book that made you laugh and One book that made you cry:

Queen of the RoadI'm not done reading it but Queen of the Road is definitely making me laugh and lots of books make me cry, but I'll go with Exodus. (Though I have to agree with Krista, Prayer for Owen Meany is one of my favorite books of all time).

One book that you wish had been written

Okay - does this mean like someone else wrote it but I wish I had, or a book idea that's been bouncing around in my head and I wish I'd just sit down and write it?

One book that you wish had never been written:

Well, I don't care that it was written but I wish I never had to read Billy Budd.

One book you're currently reading:

Suite FrancaiseI'm half-way through Suite Francaise (and am enjoying it) in addition to the aforementioned Queen of the Road.

One book you've been meaning to read:

world_without_end.jpgOnly one? World Without End (I loved The Pillars of the Earth).

I love lists like this! Now I have to track it down on some other blogs. ;)

I love your choice for the book that changed your life.

I have been meaning to read the Queen of the Road.

Love your list! Glad you joined in on this meme.


You're still reading Queen of the Road?


Great meme -- I also love book talk!

I thought Owen Meany was brilliant, and loved Suite Francaise.....and Green Eggs is, of course, a classic.

I'll have to check out Sweet Birds.

Ahhhh - perhaps I can blame being fat on Dr Suess . . . there are bad messages there! *smile*

I love Green Eggs and Ham; it's my favorite Dr. Suess book. And I've put Owen Meany on my "need to read" list after seeing you and Krista both mention it.

Great list, Kim! I read Pillars of the Earth when it was first published about 20 years ago and it is one of my favorite books. I must now find the time to read World Without End.
